Poem: Veterans Day 2018
Today we celebrate Veterans Day
We are blessed to gather as one
In an outpouring of love and gratitude
To our country’s veterans.
Human beings who loved and left family and friends
To serve God and country
without thinking about where the sacrifice ends.
We have holes in our families
And holes in our hearts
For the lives and the destruction of these young men and women who gave their all
Because of love of their country and they answered the call.
The thread that binds us today is love
For them, for us and each other.
Robots, mechanics and technology will never replace
the hope and prayers and
love that marks the service of our Veterans.
And we must never forget their gifts to us here at home.
to our nation
And to us was and is pure.
Thank you for protecting us,
With your gifts of years, life, limbs, minds and hearts.
And thank God for this day of remembrance and gratitude for the love of country, for the bravery and service of our veterans.
May God bless America —
and us all.
